the Algerian winger played an important role in

Leicester City

’s championship of the Premier League. He then joined

Manchester City

with a considerably high amount of money and became the most expensive player in the club.

Paul Dickov

claims Mahrez was predictable when he first arrived in the Etihad but he is becoming more mature and causing surprises at times now. The former City striker told the club’s official website of a player with 30 goals and as many assists to his name:

“Over the last 18 months he’s mixed it up a bit.

“We know he likes to play on the right-hand side. I wouldn’t say he was predictable because he has fantastic talent, but he was coming inside on his left a lot.

“Now he’s making defenders think a lot more because he’s checking and going on his right. He’s releasing the ball early sometimes.

“The pass to Kevin De Bruyne against Birmingham for Bernardo Silva’s second goal was world-class.

“He’s got everything. When he’s playing with a smile on his face and he’s got the space to express himself he’s a top player.”
